Cumberland County awards contract for guardrail in Parrsboro

The Municipality of the County of Cumberland has approved the award of a contract to Eastern Fence Erectors for a value of $29,600 plus HST to replace two sections of flexible steel guardrail on Two Islands Road in Parrsboro.

There are two sections of flexible steel guardrail on timber posts (about 200 metres and 20 metres long) along the west side of Two Islands

Road.Many of the timber posts are rotted and a few have erosion of the surrounding ground due to high tides flowing across the road, making the guardrail unlikely to function as intended.The guardrail is about 40 years old and nearing the end of its useful life.
